How Long Should My Water Heater Last?

The lifespan of your water heater depends on a few different factors: how much maintenance it has received, when and where it was installed, whether it was installed correctly, how much use it gets, what brand or manufacturer it is, and who has completed water heater repairs. In general, a home water heater should last between 11-20 years, but it’s possible that at some point it will be more cost-effective for you to replace your water heater, rather than repair it. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Lubbock, we will never try to get you to pay for a product or service you don’t need, and we will only recommend water heater replacement if that is the most logical, cost-effective option for you.

Choosing a New Water Heater

If you do end up needing a water heater replacement, we can help you choose the right type of water heater for your family’s needs and budget. When choosing your replacement water heater, we’ll consider:

  • The size of your household and your water heating needs
  • Your budget
  • How much time you can commit to water heater maintenance
  • Your energy bills
  • The cost and availability of different types of water heater fuel in your area
  • How eco-friendly you want your new water heater to be

Types of Water Heaters We Install

If you would prefer water heater replacement over water heater repair, we can install any of the following types of new water heaters for your home:

  • Conventional Home Water Heater - Stores hot water in a tank. Water is heated via electricity or natural gas. A high-efficiency hot water heater can reduce your costs for water heating by up to 7%.
  • Tankless Home Water Heater- The water is heated on-demand when needed and not stored in a tank. Can reduce your home water heating costs by up to 30%.
